10 Small Shop Finds

The holidays are upon us!  I have searched around and am proud to share these 10 unique small shops with you.  Each product is handmade with love.  Let me briefly say, I am not affiliated with these shops (other than Buy The Change).  These are truly gifted creators and I am all for supporting small businesses! 

I have listed the shops in alphabetical order, not in ranking order.

1. Änderung Design Co.

Bethany Crum is a mother of two lively girls and creates original art and decor with a twist of Bohemian Czech.  Allow her to handcraft you an authentic piece that will inspire your soul.

2. Buy The Change

Buy The Change produces incredible projects, empowers women, and changes lives.  I have recently featured this amazing company on my blog.  You can read a more in depth review here.

3. Chalk It Up with Fallon

Fallon Waldo is also a mother of two gorgeous girls and creates custom hand drawn chalkboard signs.  What started as a hobby has quickly turned into a small business; Fallon has created over 500 signs.  Her signs are prefect for birthdays, weddings, baby showers, graduation, holidays, home decor and so much more!

4. Gameday Couture

I first saw Gameday Couture on the show Shark Tank. I have followed them on social media ever since. Gameday Couture is a fashion brand for style conscious, sophisticated sports enthusiast who designs and develops fashion forward collegiate apparel.  While this company is a bit bigger than the other shops featured in this post, they are too unique to leave out.

5. Happy Wax

Happy Wax produces hand poured all natural soy wax and essential oil-infused, phthalate-free scents.  The cutest part?  The wax is molded into gummy bear shapes!  I have personally purchased these waxes, and their essence fills the room.


6. Kontur Wood Works

Kontur Wood Works offers signature designs crafted from prefelled specimens, meaning they do not cut trees to create their products.  Each piece for furniture is created from wood that would have otherwise have gone to waste. 

7. SEK Handmade

While having my hair done at my local salon, I noticed these fantastic hand knit hats.  Follow momma, Sarah Korth, creates beautiful pieces that she sells on her Etsy shop.  My favorite?  The Bun hole hats! Be sure to check out her unique knit products.

8. The Night Sky

Give a gift of the stars to always remember the night that changed your world.  The Night Sky allows you to create a custom star map of the night of your choosing. This is the perfect present for the person who has everything. 

9. Wildfolk Lumber

I came across this awesome small shop on Instagram.  They create quality lumber signs featuring hand cut letters.  Owner, Rainy Villarreal, will work hard to deliver the custom sign of your desires. 

10. WineOglass

I came across WineOglass last November when I was searching for a unique Bret Michaels gift for my daughter’s teacher.  Katie V., owner and creator of this shop, has prodigious talent.  She will hand paint your favorite celebrity and even a relative on the beverage glass of your choosing. I am truly astonished by her work. 

There you have it!  I hope I was able to help you find a truly unique gift.  There is nothing better than purchasing a great product while supporting small shops.

  1. Those chalkboard designs are incredible – I saw some similar ones on Pinterest that I want for my wedding. Hopefully I’ll be able to find someone in Northern Ireland who can help!
